How do you communicate to the tab what the "something" is?

This is the standard buffer switching functionality.

What sense does it make to have a hidden tab change color?  And what
kind of event is this in your nomenclature?

So far I'd only insist that saving and restoring window configurations
should be done with the menubar rather than with a tab.  I never ever
use toolbars but I think that mail handling routines using the toolbar
(could) do such things routinely (inform of new mail, kill a buffer and
remove the associated button when mail has been sent , ...).
